I served onboard OM Ship Doulos between 1984 and 1986 where I met Sheila who had joined at the same time. We married in 1987 and have two children, Emma and Chris. I re-joined OM in 2012 as the Deputy Finance Manager, thanks to my 20+ years of experience as Church Treasurer. In 2014 I changed roles to become the Data Manager thanks to my 30+ years’ IT experience.

My primary task is to manage the information about UK supporters in our IT systems, to manage data quality and ensure we are GDPR compliant. This involves managing partner requests to change their contact details, stop and start sending them communications, etc. Using the UK partner data, I generate postal and email lists for numerous communication items sent from our office, including the UK and worldwide field newsletters and appeals. These inform, request and encourage prayer and financial support for all the OM projects in the UK and worldwide. I also support everyone in our office who access our partner data to help them use the systems effectively and support those who use MS Excel in our office.

In September 2018 I reduced my hours with OM to study a BA (Hons) Degree in Theology part-time and I should graduate when I will be 62. This study has been a long-term desire and God prompted me to ‘get on with it’ in 2017. I would like to help Christians develop their relationship, faith and understanding of God and the Bible as well as developing my relationship, faith and understanding. The study is challenging for me as I am Dyslexic and have not studied any higher than GCSE’s since 1982.

Your financial support will release money that is used for my OM salary costs, allowing a higher percentage of funds raised to be used for OM’s work around the world.
